Callum Cooke Completes Season-Long Loan

Attacking Midfielder Arrives From Middlesbrough

18 July 2017

Middlesbrough’s Callum Cooke has completed a loan move to Blackpool until the end of the season.

The attacking midfielder, 20, is highly thought of on Teesside and played 17 games for Crewe Alexandra last season, scoring four times.

He has represented England at various youth levels and won the European Under-17 Championships with the Three Lions in 2014.

“I can’t wait to get started. Thankfully I did well last season in League Two and I’ve made a step up now, so hopefully I can take it into League One this time,” Cooke said.

“I want to add some creativity to the midfield here and get a few goals and assists again. I hope I can show everybody, including the fans, what I can do.”

Cooke becomes Blackpool’s second loan arrival of the day and ninth signing this summer.  

“Callum is someone we monitored playing for Crewe last season and I’m pleased that Garry Monk and Middlesbrough have allowed him to continue his development with us,” the manager Gary Bowyer said.

“He’s had plenty of international recognition at a young age and will add more creativity and goals to the team.”
